Description:This 1971 photograph depicts two public health practitioners, public information officer, George Stenhouse (standing), and James Cox who were former staff members of the Office of Information, as they were discussing promotional materials used in the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) “Stop Rubella” campaign.
Rubella, also known as (German Measles) causes a rash, arthritis (mostly in women), and mild fever. If a woman gets rubella while she is pregnant, she could have a miscarriage, or her baby could be born with serious birth defects. The Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR) vaccine can protect children from these diseases. Children should get 2 doses of MMR vaccine:

- The first dose at 12-15 months of age

- The second dose at 4-6 years of age

These are the recommended ages. But children can get the second dose at any age, as long as it is at least 28 days after the first dose.
